 Roseville Fire

This stream provides the City of Roseville Fire Department traffic only. I have other streams that include the police but sometimes all one wants to hear is what the fire department is up to.

Feed Notes

I supply a feed that has both the Roseville Fire Department and the Roseville Police Department, this feed is exclusively just the fire department traffic. 

Around August in 2018, the City of Roseville converted from an older analog Motorola Type II trunked radio network to a newer digital P25 Phase I radio network. So far, it appears there have been many "growing pains" with the system. Thankfully for the fire department, since they must be available for mutual aid to other areas outside of the City of Roseville, in addition to the City of Roseville's 800 MHz P25 radio network, they also have VHF radios. The Roseville Fire Department has a VHF channel that is tied in with digital 800 MHz P25 network, which the frequency is 154.0400 MHz. American Medical Response is the ambulance service for the Roseville, as well as Rocklin, Lincoln, and Auburn and many other areas within Placer County. AMR does not use any 800 MHz radio for communicating with the fire department, but they use the VHF channel to communicate with fire dispatch and fire department units responding on a call. As the city has been having issues with their new system, many times the fire department has jumped over to their VHF radios to communicate instead of their 800 MHz trunked radios.

In my setup, I am using the latest version of SDRTrunk, which is in alpha testing. Due to the fact that it is alpha testing, there are many issues that are being worked out and I give feedback to the developer on how it is functioning. Instead of being a traditional, stand-alone radio scanner, this uses inexpensive RTL-SDR USB dongles. It allows a computer to simultaneously tune in all frequencies within a 2.4 MHz span, which covers all the frequencies used by the City of Roseville's system. Because of this, I can tell SDRTrunk which talkgroups I'm interested in hearing. Locally, I can hear up to two talkgroups at a time, but I can direct any talkgroup or groups of talkgroups to be fed to Broadcastify. Initially, I sent all the fire department talkgroups and police primary talkgroup to one feed. Because sometimes, one wants to only listen to only fire or only police, I have decided to continue sending all to one feed but create additional feeds for fire only, as well as police only.
